There are over 50 SARS-CoV-2 candidate vaccines undergoing Phase II and III clinical trials. Several vaccines have been approved by regulatory authorities and rolled out for use in different countries. Due to concerns of potential teratogenicity or adverse effect on maternal physiology, pregnancy has been a specific exclusion criterion for most vaccine trials with only two trials not excluding pregnant women. Thus, other than limited animal studies, gradually emerging development and reproductive toxicity data, and observational data from vaccine registries, there is a paucity of reliable information to guide recommendations for the safe vaccination of pregnant women. Pregnancy is a risk factor for severe COVID-19, especially in women with comorbidities, resulting in increased rates of preterm birth and maternal morbidity.

Few studies have evaluated whether pandemic-related stressors, worries, and social distancing have affected the mental health of pregnant women during the COVID-19 pandemic. Data came from an online survey of United States pregnant women (n = 715), conducted in May 2020. The Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale and Generalized Anxiety Disorder Scale were used to assess depressive symptoms, thoughts of self-harm, and moderate or severe anxiety. Multiple logistic regressions were used to examine the associations of COVID-19 experiences with mental health outcomes.

The aim of this paper is to assess the perceptions of pregnant women about COVID-19 and the
prevalence of common mental disorders during the implemented social
distancing period. This was an observational, cross-sectional study using
digital media, of pregnant women exposed to social distancing due to the
COVID-19 pandemic, in Fortaleza, Ceará, Northeastern Brazil. Common
mental disorders were estimated using the modified Self-Report
Questionnaire-20 (SRQ-20) scale, and the feelings towards COVID-19 were
assessed using the Fear of COVID-19 scale through telephone calls made
in May 2020. COX multivariate regression models were used to verify the

vulnerable and have suffered great psychological impacts. Following the
coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak, a study was undertaken of
the prevalence of, and factors contributing to, symptoms of anxiety and

cross-sectional study on pregnant women was conducted from September to
December 2020 in Shenzhen, using a random-recruit method. The General
Anxiety Disorder (GAD-7) and Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9)
surveys were used to evaluate symptoms of anxiety and depression. A
multivariate logistic regression model was developed to explore factors
